These magnificent silver coins celebrate the Year of the Dog, one of 12 animals associated with the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.

The birth dates for people ruled by the Chinese Lunar dog include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018. Those born under the influence of this sign are said to be loyal, amiable, kind and friendly.

The Perth Mint will produce up to 300,000 1oz coins. Production will cease when the mintage is fully sold or at the end of the series, whichever comes first. Due to the low mintage of the 1oz size it is highly collectable and is sure to sell out fast.

Purity and Legal Tender

Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure silver in bullion quality, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

Design

Each coin’s reverse depicts a German Shepherd dog and pup lying in grass with Chinese peony flowers in the background. The design also incorporates the Chinese character for ‘dog’, the inscription ‘Year of the Dog’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.

Presentation

Each bullion coin is presented in protective acrylic capsules.
